An MRI exam on Shaquille O'Neal's right foot yesterday confirmed arthritis in his big toe, an ailment that prompted the Los Angeles Lakers to place him on the injured list a day earlier. In addition, a CT scan on O'Neal's sore left foot was negative, the Lakers said. O'Neal, averaging 26.0 points and 11.5 rebounds, was placed on the injured list before the Lakers rallied to beat the 76ers, 88-82, on Tuesday night in a rematch of June's NBA Finals. O'Neal must sit out at least four more games.

Despite her crippling arthritis and advancing age, Jeanette Twyman remained committed to maintaining her independence. Until two years ago, when her hands became too gnarled to keep at it, she ran a baking business from her North Philadelphia home, her confectionery magic renowned among those who tasted her cakes and cookies. And even after that, she insisted on getting around on her own, often making the three-mile-plus trip to see doctors in Center City in her motorized wheelchair.

Q: I recently used ibuprofen for relief of arthritis and was amazed to find that I had a problem with impotence for the first time in my 70 years of life. The public should be informed that ibuprofen can cause an undesirable situation. A: Ibuprofen, an anti-inflammatory drug used for treating arthritis, does not ordinarily cause impotence. Therefore, I think you'll have to search for another reason for your problem. Nonetheless, many drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter, inhibit sexual performance.

Hello there John and what seemed like all the other orthopedists in Philadelphia were at the gate for the first morning flight from Philadelphia to San Francisco, site of the 2012 American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons conference. Talking with Rothman Institute colleagues, he saw a beautiful woman laughing with her traveling companion. "I remember thinking that I'd never be that lucky to sit next to her on the plane," John said. But he was. As John hoisted his bag into the overhead compartment, he told himself: "Don't be that guy who sits down and immediately starts chatting up the pretty girl.

The swimming pool has long been a good place for preventive medicine, particularly in the form of exercise for people trying to avoid getting out of condition as they got older. Now, as doctors have found, it's a good place for rehabilitative exercise therapy, too, particularly to counter the effects of arthritis. One place where such exercise therapy classes are held on a regular basis is the Frankford YMCA.

Blaine M. Sutton, 91, of Hatboro, a chemist who helped develop a groundbreaking treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, died Saturday, June 30, at Abington Hospice at Warminster. Dr. Sutton was the primary researcher on a team that found in 1972 that oral administration of gold could halt the progression of arthritis in children and adults. Though the discovery of a more effective gold injection and other drugs later made Dr. Sutton's therapy less common, he is recognized as an influential arthritis researcher.

NOREEN CLARK suffered so many physical problems over so many years that people who knew her were astounded that she never let her afflictions stop her - or even slow her down much. She loved to be on the go, despite ailments that would have caused a lot of people to want to lie down and feel sorry for themselves. But if anyone asked Noreen to go out - to restaurants, the movies, shopping, bingo or whatever - she'd be right there with her unrelenting cheerful nature and bright smile.

Rheumatoid arthritis can be a painful, debilitating disease. But like some of its victims, Fred LeStourgeon was lucky enough to find long-term relief through drug therapy - in his case, with a combination of two widely available generic drugs. Then something odd happened, and LeStourgeon has been asking questions ever since. Last fall, one of the medications he relied on, leflunomide, nearly vanished from the market - only a much higher-priced brand version, Arava, remained available.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 40-something divorced female. After my divorce I met a man I enjoyed being with. He led me to believe he cared for me and I bought into it. It was a vulnerable time for me and, unfortunately, I let my guard down. I did something stupid and co-signed for a student loan for him. He has stopped making payments, has blocked my calls, moved, etc., and now I'm stuck with the financial burden. I have learned that he had a fiancee while we were involved and they are now married.

Question: What causes osteoarthritis? Answer: Osteoarthritis, the progressive wearing down of the cartilage in joints, is generally thought to occur because of wear and tear of the joint - especially the joints in the knees, hips, and low back. Excess body weight and repetitive injury to certain joints are known risk factors for developing osteoarthritis, but it's actually not as simple as that.

KOHLER, Wis. - The big news from Phil Mickelson wasn't that he has become a vegetarian, even though he called that one a shocker. Instead, it was the revelation that he has been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, in which the immune system attacks the joints and tendons. But as scary as that sounds, he said he has started treatment and everything is fine now. He just wasn't able to work out for 7 weeks, and is only back to about 80 percent of the weight he was before. "About 5 days before the U.S. Open started [in mid-June]

Dear Harry: Last summer, I ate some pork sausage that I bought at a supermarket. It made me terribly ill. I called 9-1-1, and a very helpful crew took me to the hospital. They kept me for four days to get rid of the bug, and now I'm OK (I think). I then contacted a lawyer to sue the store for my costs and pain and suffering. She made me sign a contract with her for a fee of 40 percent of anything I got. Since then I have heard from her only once. Every time I call, I'm told she's out of her office or in court.
